105. Witchling

105. Witchling (Sisters of the Moon #1) by Yasmine Galenorn B
"Meet the D'Artigo sisters: half-human, half-faerie, they're savvy-and sexy-operatives for the Otherworld Intelligence Agency. But their mixed-blood heritage short-circuits their talents at all the wrong times. Delilah shapeshifts into a tabby cat whenever she's stressed. Menolly's a vampire who's still trying to get the hang of being undead. And Camille is a wicked-good witch, except her magic's as unpredictable as the weather, as her enemies are about to find out-the hard way."

First on Yasmin Galenorn's urban fantasy novel introduces us to the D'Artigo sisters. This is told on the point of view of Camille whose magic can be absolutely perfect as well as backfire at any given time. Each book in the series will focus on the point of view of each sister, books 2(Delilah) and 3(Menolly) and back to Camille again on book 4. In the first book, we learn all about the sisters and how they are working for the Otherworld Intelligence Agency. When one of the other operatives was killed, the sisters find out that the evil demon leader Shadow King is rallying demons to merge the Otherworld, Earth and Deomworld and wreak havok in all three. Since Otherwold is having it's own crisis and is not equipped to handle this seige, it is up to the three sisters to save the day.

The book was ok for me. I loved Yasmine Galenorn's Chintz China Series but her India Ink series didnt really impress me so much. The thing that I like about Witchling is that I liked the characters, there's even a fox spirit involved, go Kitsune! In a way, the story was very cliche in that they had to find the seals that would bind all three worlds together before Shadow King does (deja vu Supernatural),and it really read like a prologue of the whole story for me. I'ld probably read the next in the series and see after that.
